About owner/manager

I spent my childhood summers in Maine. The beauty of Maine's landscape is second to none.

owner/manager purchased this townhome in 2001

Why owner/manager chose Great Diamond Island

Having spent many summers in Maine I knew I would eventually buy property in Maine. Great Diamond Island and Diamond Cove offer peace and quiet while at the same time providing the opportunity for one to join in community activities if one chooses to do so. The island has a wonderful restaurant and an island store which allows for a delicious meal or for one to pick up needed supplies. The island guarantees rest and relaxation while at the same time providing amenities such as a heated pool, tennis courts, weight room, gym, biking, bird watching, beach combing , duck pin bowling, kayaking, Island museum, island tours as well as an opportunity to explore the beauty of the island. Exploring the island provides great exercise as well as an opportunity to watch sailboats, lobster boats and the many birds that frequent the islands. Portland is a beautiful and interesting city and is only a short boat ride away. Diamond Cove is a wonderful place and it will provide a very memorable vacation.

What makes this townhome unique

Electric heat if needed. Claw foot tub.

House is cozy and complete.

Close to tennis courts and pool.

Wonderful, charming home and time in lovely Diamond Cove.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time on Great Diamond Island. It is a simple, magical place just a short ferry ride from Portland. The house was just right for myself, my two grown sons and their girl friends. It is very clean and well equipped.

Ellen and John are perfect hosts. John met us at the ferry, showed us the house and they were available for any questions throughout our stay.

We so enjoyed the history of the island, exploring, using the swimming pool, playing in the games room (fantastic old ten pin bowling!) We enjoyed dinner at Diamond Edge, going to Sea Glass beach, riding the bikes, the 4th of July costume parade, etc. It's such a quaint, very chill and quiet island, but only a short ferry ride to Portland, which is a great city. The food, music, shopping are awesome.

We had the best vacation. Thank you for sharing your home. Highly recommend it.

a wonderful weekend on Great Diamond Island!

  • 5 of 5

Six of us stayed at this cozy home in Diamond Cove on Great Dismond Island. Our host greeted us at the ferry and showed us around the house! We received a helpful packet of information from our host a month before our arrival. The house was very clean and the beds comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the front and back porch in the morning and evening. We swam at the lovely pool and went for walks all around the island! I would recommend this house and Great Diamond Island for a relaxing vacation!

Wonderful, peaceful time in a historical building in Diamond Cove.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay on Great Diamond Island. A magical place just a short ferry ride from Portland. Ellen and John were perfect hosts - they greeted us from our ferry and took time to show us their property & were available for any questions throughout our stay. The house was perfect for our family. Very clean and well equipped - along with toys for our children and bikes for us to explore.

We enjoyed exploring the island, using the swimming pool, playing in the games room (fantastic old ten pin bowling!) It was a treat to wake up to bird song and the island is very safe due to no (or little amount) of vehicles. We enjoyed dinner at the inn, coffee and ice cream from the general store. It's a very chilled and quiet island so not recommended for those looking for action - but perfect for a couple or small family looking to escape and get away from it all.

We hope to return again next summer and highly recommend this lovely house on a beautiful and peaceful island.

Thank you Ellen and John!

Perfectly comfortable and quiet summer house!

  • 4 of 5

This house on Great Diamond Island at the cove was most comfortable, very clean, and perfectly organized, especially since we had two little children, 4 and 1 and a half years old, for whom we found all the toys we needed. The owners are friendly people and offered to meet us on arrival. All in all we had a lovely stay!

You won't regret renting this island home!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely cottage for our daughter, son-in-law, and their three kids. It was very accommodating and clean--plus the overall feeling of the home was just like it should be for the upper New England area. The island itself is charming with lots of opportunities for kids to have fun...highly recommend this rental!
